Two civilians, including a child, were killed and four others injured on Saturday in a roadside bombing targeting a Taliban vehicle in Afghanistan’s eastern region. Taliban and health officials gave this information. District police chief Ismatullah Mubariz said a child was killed in two bombings near a Taliban vehicle.

Ismatullah Mubariz said the Taliban fighters were not harmed. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Islamic State (IS) group is active in eastern Nangarhar province, where it has launched repeated attacks targeting the Taliban.

A local hospital official said four injured civilians have been admitted to the hospital. Last week, IS claimed responsibility for a deadly suicide bombing on a Shia mosque in southern Afghanistan that killed 47 people and injured several others.
